This verse of the scripture is powerful. Its revealed to us what makes us a believer. We have not to be ashamed to tell others about the gospel of christ.

Christ came to complete the law not do away with it god said i will make a new covenant with the HOUSE of ISERIAL that he will but the law in them write them on their hearts instead of stone, he even talks about the latter days if the laws are no more than what is the point of repentance? The law is to be written in our hearts not to be forgotten

Butchie's comment on 2013-04-28 07:10:45:
I believe we christians should climb atop the telephone poles and 'shout out' this 'Good News' to the people of this world. So many are hungrily seeking the truth but they are being led astray.
Where there is no truth, the people will believe a lie. There are now many anti-christ in this world doing all they can to suppress the teaching of 'The Good News', The Gospel of Jesus Christ. There is much that needs to be done, the fields truly are 'ripe unto the harvest', ready to be saved. How can they be saved,? except they hear the Gospel, how can they hear except someone preach and teach it to them. Who will say ' here am I oh Lord, send me, I will go '? Preach the Gospel to the ends of the earth.

True it is the power of our salvation; it is like an engine in a car or a motorcycle. Be blessed.
Prince phiri's comment on 2013-01-03 03:27:29:
I like this verse. I have no doubt that the whole New Testament is centered in this verse.
Clinton alexander's comment on 2012-10-27 08:02:25:
Let us know that the Gospel is the power of God that giveth salvation to believers ONLY, it is a sorrowful message that if we do not believe in him, and the salvation will not be ours. SO friends, let us give ourselves to God in order to be saved. AMEN!!!
